Deals with individual who habitually fails to plan and use time wisely in carrying out responsibilities.
Jean disappoints her peers when she becomes chairman of the social committee. She always puts everything off to the last minute and as chairman she says, "I'll take care of everything" and then cannot live up to her words. Her classmates urge her to get things started early and to divide up the workload, a teacher suggests that she make a "to do" list with time allotted for each task but instead of heeding their advice she isn't able to get everything together for the school dance and everybody is justifiably upset with her.

Why were they shocked? We learn at the beginning of the film that all her friends KNEW she was a procrastinator. Jim was sorry that Marge was not elected as the chairman and indicated that Jean "never sees things through". This is where we learn that Jean was chairman of the class assembly the year before and everything had been done at the last minute and everyone was so mad!
So if this was an "elected" position, why in the heck did they all vote for Jean again? Will they vote for Jean again next year?
A great little film and very amusing to watch. One of my favorites.
